Between 1945 and 1990 Berlin was divided into the four sectors of World War II’s victorious powers. The buildings now occupied by the Berlin Allied Museum are located in the heart of what was once the American sector in Berlin, the seat of the U.S. military government and the Berlin Brigade, and bear witness to the Allied presence in Berlin.
The permanent exhibition documents the almost 50-year history of the Western powers’ presence in Berlin. Exhibits include the world-famous guardhouse from Checkpoint Charlie and many other objects related to the political, military, and everyday history of the city. The museum’s annual special exhibitions are devoted to historic anniversaries, special events, and various individual aspects of the Allies’ years in Berlin.
Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., closed Wednesdays
